Driving innovative solutions together and shaping a sustainable future
The Academia Raetica, based in Davos, is the association for the promotion of science, research and education in the canton of Graubünden and its surroundings. Its members include thirty research institutes, universities and clinics. It was founded in 2006 with the purpose of promoting scientists, connecting its members with each other and representing their interests in politics and in public.
On the basis of a performance mandate from the Canton of Graubünden, Academia Raetica promotes the continuing education, work and development of scientists through transferable skills courses and networking opportunities. It connects and supports its members in cooperative projects with each other as well as with research institutions outside the canton. It communicates with cantonal offices and companies and promotes dialogue between the disciplines. It also informs the public and politicians about the social and economic importance of research in the canton. It supports the government in the implementation of its higher education, research and innovation strategy. Academia Raetica was last evaluated in 2018 by the Swiss Agency for Accreditation and Quality Assurance.
